[Back to index]

Contained herein are the new, slightly more insightful texts, then follows the commercial column and on the back of the page, you may discover all of my old, bad essays of seriously compromised quality. Mainly please take notice of the post-2006 one, since while the old ones are seriously hit-and-miss I'm at least partial to many of the newer ones. There's a bit of ignorance there, but hey. I'm dumb.

These are the Finnish texts I wrote for a couple of months for the gaming publication V2.fi, which you're more than welcome to check out:

And the following texts comprise the old rant section. You can tell they're really old, because I really was depressed and struggling to come up with even a handful of sentences. This leads to the fact that at least half of 'em are pure and utter crap, but I suppose there's no sense in deleting any as long as I tell you that they're just dismal. In any case, I would assume I'd just go delete the wrong ones, anyway. But, browse and enjoy, embarrassing and positively ancient as they may be.

Ick. Some of the old rants have been "revisited" by me after the date of writing, usually to add
some self-deprecating commentation or to clarify something (like my inability to write).

Rants, WTF!? Get me the hell out of here
